If we were to create a best XI from the region who would be on the squad and how would that team perform at the World Cup?
Mine would be:
Navas in goal for the easiest decision
Dest as RB.
Davies as a LB seems unfair because he's so good. But I think this allows the most players to get on the field.
CBs: Brooks and Araujo. Kind of a tough call for me to be honest.
CM: McKennie, Edson Alvares, Hector Herrera
This is where is gets tough...
Choosing 3 between Puli, Lozano, Jonathan David, Jimenez, Antonio, Gio, Tecatito, and probably someone else thats not even written down is a tough freaking tast.
Because I'm an American Puli gets on the squad. After that, I'm taking Antonio over Jimenez just for the sake of choosing someone from a different country. Honestly Gio might be the most talented but hes young and injury prone so I'll leave him off. I will take Lozano.
Dest Brooks, Araujo, Davies
Lozano, Antonio, Puli
That team would be competitive at a WC. I would argue they should make a semi final.
